Only the best can be expected from Elie Saab, who year after year wows the bridal world. The designer magnifies femininity working with fine materials, delicate embroideries with outstanding quality.
His exquisite couture dresses are adored not only by Hollywood starlets on the red carpet but also by the most persnickety of fashion insiders and, crucially, by actual paying customers. Far from arriving like a bolt from the blue, however, he has been quietly pursuing a distinctive vision for the past two decades. His dresses are the softly whispering stuff of luminous dream visions. Nevertheless, having spent some time with him in Beirut and in Paris, I think the bomb-blasted backdrop is relevant. Mr. Saab is a man who inhabits a world of contrasts so extreme as to appear irreconcilable. It is a peculiar niche, but one in which he seems to feel entirely at home, if not entirely comfortable.
His haute couture range was a true inspiration for women on the hunt for wedding dresses, featuring draping silk, feathered designs and floral and petal lacework, all in white, vanilla or rose.
It is always a pleasure going through those pieces of art! Below we have picked our favorite looks from his Couture collections from the last three year.
Sit back and enjoy the beauty!
